So this is my first post on XRP Chat... I've been following the likes of @JoelKatz, @Hodor and various other Top Members on here and on the Reddit Forum since I first bought my Zerps. I firstly wanted to commend the community for instilling such a positive attitude (to both Ripple and others within the community [even those who spread FUD]). When I first joined the Reddit Forum there were <40,000 members but that has since grown to over 160,000 in the last 6 weeks). I invested in late November and have used forums, YouTube, Ripple Insights etc... to keep a track of all the news and goings on which may affect the price of XRP in 2018 and beyond. I wondered what other people on the forum foresee being the 'Big' announcements for Ripple in the first two Quarters of the year. I've done quite a bit of reading and have listed a few of mine below: Q4 Report - This was initially a big one for me given the speculation about the '2 household names'. With that being said I understand that the majority of quarterly reporting (at least from traditional investments) merely 'rounds up' the trailing 3 months rather than speculates on forthcoming partnerships. SBI Holdings Pilot Feedback 31st January - The proposed date that SBI holdings (part of the Softbank Group) announce their results from utilisations of XRP as a source of liquidity within their group of 61 Japanese Banks. For those who don't know a great deal about Softbank, this business is HUUUUGEEE. I work within Consumer Electronics and Consultancy within the UK and Softbank have fingers in every pie (investments in Manchester Airport, The M6 Toll Road, Brightstar Electronics [Global Partner of Apple], 36% Share Holder of Alibaba). This is the BIG one for me; companies of this stature will deploy the XRP cost saving solution across the business (for inter-group financial transactions) and will hopefully have a big say in any stakeholder meetings with their extended investments. Brad Garlinghouse speaking at Yahoo Finance Conference - Brad will be supporting some big names within the world of Finance at the Yahoo Conference this year. Although I don't believe this will bring huge price action, I do think it will add further credibility to both Ripple and XRP (is the CEO of any other Crypto speaking there **ahem** Bitcoin **ahem**??) MoneyGram Pilot Conclusion - Pilot's can last months (and even years) so this is purely speculative but should Moneygram positively conclude their Pilot in 2018, I think this will bring some strong positive price action. Coinbase - The dreaded 'C' word... We all saw the negative action the Statement from their CEO brought to Ripple... This (in my opinion) proves the potential of a listing on Coinbase and the potential upswing this would bring. I've seen it written thousands of times, but psychology has a strong baring on the Retail Investor and I genuinely believe that a coin listed in 'Sub-$XXX' listed on CB, will attract much more 'Newbies' looking to find the next 'Moonshot'. Speculation - Since I first Invested (Late November [Thanks to The TeenageInvestor on Youtube]) there has been limited 'Real World' utilisation of XRP as a genuine source for on demand liquidity. Admittedly , some companies (Cuallix) have been using it Day to Day but on the whole, the majority of utilisation has been in 'Pilot' form or has been sidestepped for pure RippleNet testing. I do believe however, that once companies realise the potential to free up any liquidity held for oversees remittance etc... that at that point, XRP will come into its own. Additional PR - This is one I've dreamt up on my own but given that Ripple as a business are on what looks like recruitment drive for Marketing Experts (recent hire of ex-Facebook Marketeer), I believe they will be putting a lot of pressure on MSM to keep up the positive momentum surround Crypto and Ripple/XRP. Market Pressures - Competition in any market is positive for business. VISA recruiting BlockChain specialists with experience of Ripple R3, ETH and BTC means they are trying to catch a slice of the market Ripple are seeking. This will be exciting to watch given that Ripple are some years ahead of the competitors and VISA already have the majority of Key Account Partnerships tied up in their existing business. Nevertheless, I see this as excellent for Ripple and Blockchain in general. Other Listed Companies riding the 'Crypto Wave' - As we have seen recently, partnerships with Crypto's bring positive action (to both the Crypto and the Stock [Moneygram being one example]). I therefore wouldn't be surprised if more Fortune 500, FTSE100 etc... companies start trialling and experimenting with Blockchain in their existing business to bring some returns for their shareholders. Those are just a few of my thoughts. I would love to hear the thoughts from some of the other 'Top Members' @XRPto50dollars, @RegalChicken, @buckor, @Chewiecoin and where they see the price action arriving this year. Thanks for reading. #XRPtheStandard
Hi all, There are a lot of big 'possible' prive movers fo Ripple planned for the coming months, but I haven't seen a topic were all of these are combined. It might be interesting to see a timeline when what will happen, so we know when to watch the fireworks ;-) As far as I know now there are the following three things to happen in the near future: 16-18 October - Swell. A three day conference were big key note speakers (ao. Bernanke and Berners -Lee) will adress the conference. This goes paralel with the SWIFT conference in Toronto, so all decision makers will be in town for Ripple, curious to see who will choose Ripple and who will turn to SWIFT... On September 12th the full list of speakers will be published. Can't really predict what the price of XRP will do during this conference, but the '3, 2, 1 tweet' made South Korea more aware of XRP, so hopefully it will give the price a boost! SBI Ripple Asia has it's Go Live in the autumn, I believe. Would 'prove' the solution by Ripple works and could attract a lot more banks choosing for Ripple. Could drive the price of XRP massively! January 1st, Ripple will put their XRP stash into Escrow, minimizing the active amount of XRP. This scarcity could drive the price. Also, potential investors/speculators could be comforted with the fact that Ripple can't overflow the market with XRP at once, and might find that more conforting to invest in... Personally, I don't think this will effect the price of XRP by much, but when it does, it will be a positive influance. If you have more information, events or maybe adjustments on my data, please add! Could be a nice feature for the site as well.. Cheers, Sambal
The digital identity management platform that has BTC and XRP build in as payment assets and automatically creates a Gatehub account for every registrant has released an early version of their Roadmap. It's part vision piece and part high-level technical overview. It's quite ambitious but I think some of the concepts have merit. This project is related to Ripple and I'm interested to hear others' thoughts (there is competition https://www.uport.me/). I'm hoping they focus more on the identity management integrated with payment and less on the chat and geolocation for now. Better to do one thing well than many things poorly and there are already so many chat platforms I'm not sure that there's enough of a value proposition at this point for native chat to be a draw. However, if I could make a bank payment to someone else's bank via a Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, email address or other identity that would be quite novel. A peer-to-peer payment application that only requires that you know someone's public identity would be significant. https://www.globalid.net/wp-content/uploads/globaliD-roadmap.pdf
